In Between Time

What a beautiful cold and frosty morning! 

Perfect for this 'in between time'.  Christmas Day passed in a flurry of eating, drinking and flying wrapping paper; I loved my handmade gifts from Sandra, Helene, Jacqui and Barbara

I had made them each little purses

But I think on the 'home made' front, Victoria won!  She has stitched a beautiful cross stitch of Maidencourt:

It's truly magnificent - what a very clever young lady!

Our present to George, Victoria and Ben was a spot of flying which they enjoyed on Boxing Day morning (at first they thought I'd booked them to go sky diving, so they were relieved when they realised it was indoors!)

And then the next day it was the East Garston Fun Run and we all supported Victoria:

And now I don't really know what to do with myself.... Nearly all the turkey has gone; my favourite way to cook the left overs is make up a bake with onions, potatoes, cheese and drizzled with the garlic infused rape seed oil my sister gave us:

I think I'd better take the dogs out for a walk in this beautiful sunshine!


  1. Loving that first photo a lot. Yes just going out for a ealk myself.

  2. That top photo is glorious! And Victoria's cross stitch is fantastic! As are your purses, with the mini hexagons. Have a nice walk

  3. Clever purses and lovely cross stitch.Turkey bake looks tasty I'm doing Thai style turkey curry today!

  4. Forgot to say the embroidery by Victoria is aamazing.
